Le Tipe Umane
On the occasion of the Milan Fashion Week, from February 19th to March 9th 2019, Tommaso Calabro presents its first interdisciplinary project: Le Tipe Umane, an exhibition of Italian designer Andrea Incontri, curated by Caroline Corbetta, which combines fashion, visual arts, digital communication and applied arts. Andrea Incontri delved into his passion for art and illustration when, in 2016, he started creating his now iconic Tipe Umane. Drawn freehand by the designer on his Instagram account on videos and photos of his daily life, they are female figures, which come alive as rapid yet detailed sketches following no preparatory study. Executed by using the entire Instagram color palette, Le Tipe Umane embody Incontri’s personal representation of a feminine universe. Ladies walking with their dogs or young girls going out for shopping – women of different ages and attitudes, these characters wear an infinite variety of outfits, curated in every detail, that reveal their diverse personalities and show their creator’s attentive observation of aesthetic and social norms.
